Some favorite baby books

I wanted to highlight some of our favorite books to read to/with Rosie. I feel I should add that we also love anything and everything by Jane Yolen, and most books by Sandra Boynton. But this post is going to focus on some books that Rosie has *particularly* liked, that we highly recommend to the baby in your life.

Peekaboo I Love You
from Lamaze

Peekaboo games with everyone in the family including the pets. An interactive cloth book with flaps to open and peek under. Great book for Rosie to practice her sign language. And her Peek-a-boo. :)

Baby Faces Board Book #2, by Roberta Grobel Intrater

This book introduces the common phrases used to coax a smile out of a kid while also expressing love for babies in all moods. Rosie seemed fascinated by the photos.

Talk-about-Books, by Debbie Bailey (Author), Sue Huszar (Photographer)

Basic statements about what kids do with their grandpa, illustrated with great photos and captioned sweetly.

Peekaboo Morning
Text and illustrations by Rachel Isadora

When Rosie points to this book, she says "Daddy", and sure enough the legs on the front cover belong to Daddy. This is a joyous book. At the end when the baby finds "You!", Brian started a tradition of bringing the book up to Rosie's cheek as though the baby in the book is giving her a kiss, and she loves that too.

Everywhere Babies
by Susan Meyers, illustrated by Marla Frazee

Wonderful rhymes, and delightful, easy to understand, yet complex, illustrations, that Rosie has spent more time with as she learns more words and concepts.

Do you have a favorite baby or toddler book to recommend?
